I Had A Baby. And Still Haven't Written About It

Since February of this year, I've had a plethora of opportunities to write about my pregnancy. A lot of things have happened since then. I'm not sure why but I've had an utter lack of desire to write...about much of anything. I finally sat down last week and wrote about what my recovery has been like. Then found a site that would actually pay me to publish it. I signed some paperwork so I can't publish what I wrote on my blog but I can share the link. You know, in case you feel like reading about my vagina. 

Six Things I Wish Someone Would Have Told Me About Postpartum Recovery.

OH! And there are pictures!  I like pictures.

  1. You brought back memories. It has been a very long time for me, but you never forget.

    Excellent. You did a great favour to mom-to-bes. This should be in every OB-GYN office, as required reading for every woman from puberty through The Change.

    1. HA! At the very least there may be a drastic reduction in planned pregnancies.

  2. Bahaha! Spot on. I would add that you can't walk anywhere for the first two weeks without feeling like your uterus is going to literally fall out and the first time around I broke like 3 blood vessels in my eye/face from pushing so hard which was suuuuper attractive.

  3. Congrats on the new baby boy!!! Hope all is going well for you, your little bundle of boyness, your uterus and your vagina.

    I think a lot of us can relate that our visions of the perfect pregnancy and perfect delivery were fantasy the ended with nasty body malfunctions being our reality. Still even with my youngest child being born 41 years ago, the joy of having the baby out weighs all the things that weren't expected to get that accomplished.

    A long time ago, I did a post about how we had been scheduled to deliver (by induction) our stillborn baby only to find out that he was alive. (and now 41)
    Everything possible went wrong with that pregnancy, delivery, and recovery but if I look into the face of my handsome, grown son none of that is the first thing that comes to mind. Still...if I had known some of what I was in for prior to having kids...there would have been some hesitation on my part.

  5. Good job on the article! I feel like it would be wrong of me to share the problems Mrs. Noisewater has had with her lady area and surrounding areas, but let's just say that I think she can relate. My boy was 9 pounds and had a big, big head.
